  • A mixture of snow, ice and college pranksters

    Tomorrow’s predicted snowstorm reminds me of that Raleigh snowstorm three years ago made more entertaining thanks to the work of some enterprising NC State pranksters: A cable news channel in Raleigh, North Carolina shut down a Web application designed to allow local schools and businesses to report weather-related…
